Who Is the Most Delusional 'Big Brother 14' Houseguest?
John Kubicek

Senior Writer, BuddyTV

It takes a certain amount of self-delusion to appear on Big Brother. By going into the house filled with cameras that film you 24/7, you're clearly under the impression that you are worth watching.

There are constant conversations inside the Big Brother 14 about how the HGs think they're being perceived and what other HGs thinks about them. And that's where things get truly delusional.

This season, more than most, seems to be full of HGs with a wildly massive gap between reality and their perception. In some ways, all seven of the remaining HGs have deluded themselves into thinking something that isn't necessarily true.

Here is a brief rundown of what makes each of the final seven so delusional, then you can vote for who is the worst.

Frank

Frank insists that he has a great social game despite the fact that he has been nominated EVERY SINGLE TIME he hasn't won HoH. His delusions get even worse because, even though he's been lied to and betrayed by his alliances time and time again, he still has trust in people. This week in particular he seems to believe he will stay over Joe by a 3-1 or 4-0 vote, when the reality is that it will be just the opposite. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. That describes Frank perfectly.

Jenn

Jenn has been nominated twice, once against Boogie and once against Frank. What makes her so delusional is that both times she got very angry and thought she was the target. There's a huge gap between how good of a player she thinks she is and how good of a player everyone else thinks she is, because no one actually perceives her as a threat. She's a pawn who thinks she's a queen.

Danielle

Her obsessive love for Shane is enough to make her delusional, but it's her willingness to believe others that is truly astounding. Danielle spends more time than anyone else in the house worrying about how she's being perceived because she doesn't want to be seen as a villain. That's not delusional (although the fact that she thinks it's because she evicted Janelle kind of is). The crazy part is that others are able to convince her otherwise, that she's NOT being portrayed as a stalker.

Shane and Joe

BuddyTV user koikuro summed it up best: "Watching Joe and Shane talking game is like watching Dumb and Dumber." These two are so embarrassingly bad at the game and ignorant of how it's played that whenever they talk to each other about strategy, it's just laughably sad. Shane does admit to not knowing a lot of the show (he'd never seen it before getting cast), but that doesn't make it any less delusional for him to actually be talking to Joe as if those two are a brain trust coming up with ways to win and pull the wool over other people's eyes. Every time I watch Shane think, I can almost see the monkey pedaling a bicycle to power the motor in his brain.

Ian

Ian is an odd duck. Sometimes he does seem like the evil genius he claims to be, conspiring with Dan and the Quack Pack. But other times he acts like a little kid, like opening Christmas presents and oohing over Legos the same way I did when I was 9. Ian's delusion is that he sees himself as a villain when, as far as I can tell, he's basically a willing tool for Dan, Danielle and Shane. Frank initially thought Ian was simply brainwashed by Dan. That's not entirely true, but I think Ian may have actually washed his own brain.

I think Ian is playing a lot more of a strategic game than it appears on the surface. He is one of those super-fans that can recite from memory what happened in any season, on any day, in any important event. It's amazing to hear him recite from memory what happened 5,6,8 seasons ago with this or that player and what the outcome was. Whenever the producers find one of these guys (they are almost always men) they either cast them or have them appear in the weekly on-line recap shows.


Dan

Dan might be the least deluded person on the show because he understands and acknowledges his own hypocrisy. That either makes him brilliant or the most delusional one of all. He's always reading the Bible, swearing his allegiance to everyone, but he willingly admits that he's lying and deceiving people to win the game. I respect players who can separate the game from real life, but Dan's almost criminally insane ability to compartmentalize his emotions might make him more delusional than everyone.

Big Brother 14 Week 8: Counting The Votes

Posted: 04 Sep 2012 11:00 AM PDT

Shane Danielle and Dan toast on Big Brother 14

We’re down to just four votes this week on Big Brother 14 to decide the next eviction. With so little voting the slightest breeze could change the direction of the house and set it down a new course. Could that happen this week? Let’s take a look at the votes.

Right now only two HGs don’t know who will most likely be evicted: Frank and Joe.

Frank confidently believes he has the votes of all four people. Why? Because they’ve told him so and they’ve told him with the definite knowledge that he won’t be staying.

Jenn, Frank’s close ally last week, learned earlier from Danielle that she was going to be saved and Frank would be voted out. She shared a nice laugh with Danielle at this but never made any attempt to warn Frank. Even after she was saved she’s declined to alert Frank about what’s coming his way. Instead she’s actually talked to Frank like he’s staying.

Danielle, allegedly part of Frank’s alliance with Dan and Jenn, keeps telling Frank they’re “good” and she’ll be voting to keep him. She isn’t.

Shane has similarly told Frank he has his support. He’s also held conversations with Frank about how he’ll keep working everyone to make sure he’s safe. On the other side of that coin Shane warned Danielle to just tell Frank he has her vote to keep him from hounding her all week.

Dan, another ally from the chaos of last week, has led Frank to believe he’ll be staying this time around. Dan has even told Frank he’ll hang out more with Danielle to keep her under watch to make sure they have her vote. Meanwhile Dan told the cameras his Veto win was the ticket to getting Frank out of the game.

Frank is going to go home on Thursday, but how that vote count works out is still unknown. Shane and Danielle are definitely voting out Frank. Jenn might vote to keep Frank since she’s allegedly aligned with him while still knowing he’d leave even if she did. Dan is another questionable vote. He wants Frank to leave, but if he’s going to keep his anti-Frank position covered then he may have to vote in favor of Frank.

A split vote would take it to Ian as the HoH and tie-breaker. Ian has now twice nominated Frank, fought against him in front of the house, and privately confirmed he wants him gone. If Dan wants to hide his intentions and get out Frank then we may see him working Ian to convince him that it’d be best for Ian to put that nail in Frank’s coffin.

How do you think the votes will fall out on Thursday night? Don’t forget that we’ll be treated to another awesome double eviction so while we might know where round one is going there’s no way to be sure about the second set of voting.
